do, then governor romney is your candidate. >> i will not reduce the share paid by high-income individuals. i know that you and your running mate keep saying that, and i know it's a popular thing to say with a lot of people, but it's just not the case. look, i've got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that's not always true but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. >> for 18 months he's been running on this tax plan. and now five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big, bold idea is never mind. >> you said you get a deduction for taking a plant overseas? look, i've been in business for 25 years. i have no idea what you're talking about. i maybe need to get a new accountant, but the idea that you get a break for shipping jobs overseas is simply not the case. mr. president, you're entitled to your own airplane and your own house but not your facts. i don't have any plan to cut education funding and grants for people on going to college i'm continuing on growing. is it so critical it's worth paying to china? i apologize, mr

the president did a lot better and probably won the debate. i think romney kind of laid out the red carpet for him to hone in on romney's weaknesses for some reason. romney was kind of weak last night, especially on libya. mark halperin, what do you think? >> i think the president won for two reasons mostly. one is libya. an issue the republicans thought they'd have an advantage on and instead romney gave an incredibly weak answer and the president gave a strong one. i think potentially taking the issue off the table the rest of the way including the national security debate. and romney loses as a politician when his opponents get inside his head on being rich and supporting policies which would seem to favor the rich. i thought the president did it all night. and romney showed it. the guy from denver was largely not there. >> joe, what stood out to you? >> well, the first 20 minutes of the poll, what stood out to me was the fact that this was a format, like we said yesterday, that really didn't play to mitt romney's strength. >> yeah. >> he came on way too strong. one thing that all chall

's at 51%. mitt romney is at 43%. both campaigns think this one is getting more difficult by the moment for mitt romney to win. however -- and this is where it gets fascinating -- in virginia, the president's lead has shrunk to just two points, within the margin of error. last month president obama led by five points there. in florida, mitt romney has closed the gap as well. he's now statistically tied in the state of florida. it is a one-point lead. 47%-46%. al hunt, it is fascinating. ohio seems to be on its own as far as the swing states go. but we could show other swing state polls in colorado, in nevada, in north carolina. these states are really getting tight, to such a degree that a great performance by romney tonight could change the dynamic. >> conceivably, but i don't think it's quite that close yet. i think you certainly see it, as you point out, in florida and virginia. you don't see it in ohio. wisconsin it looks like it's actually widening. iowa, it's four to six. and the problem by taking michigan and pennsylvania off the table, which really the romney people have done de

issues, as governor romney has. >> the president had created this false image of mitt romney in the minds of some voters that was completely knocked down in that first debate. and i think now what's becoming apparent in these debates is that the president has no plan for the next four years. he's failed to outline any sort of ideas how he'll govern the country in his words forward over the next four years. and that's why these debates have mattered more than ever. tomorrow is his last chance to tell us what he's going to do over the next four years. >> and good morning. it is monday, october 22nd. and folks here in boca have been up since 2:00 in the morning. there are 15 days to go until election day, and we're live from racks downtown eatery, where everyone is here in boca raton, florida, just miles away from lynn university where the final presidential debate will take place tonight. welcome, everyone. it's good to have you here. we have a great crowd here. >> it's unbelievable. >> can you believe this? >> great crowd in here. they're all packed out there. >> they're wide awake. >> mik

this polling was conducted after the third and final debate. >> and if there was any doubt about romney's momentum, look at what happened in virginia. a new fox news poll shows romney now leading by two points. last month the same poll had obama up seven. and in the abc/"washington post" daily tracking poll of likely voters, romney has taken a three-point lead, 50%-47%. on monday, the president was leading 49%-48%. and on the economy when asked who voters trust more on that issue, romney now has a sizeable nine-point lead. >> so you look at these national polls, mika, abc news/"washington post" poll showing a four-point lead in the national poll. this week. a four-point swing in the national poll. gallup, of course, has had mitt romney ahead i think way too much over the past week or two. sometimes five, six points. and in the national poll, it really does seem -- if you take all the polls, it really does seem like mitt romney is moving away from barack obama. and yet you go to these swing states, nevada, holding steady for barack obama. colorado, still deadlocked. virginia, slightly go

romney because president obama sure did. many political experts were surprised that during wednesday's debate, president obama failed to mention mitt romney's infamous 47% comment. obama elected to take the high road, forgetting that that road leads to building houses with jimmy carter. romney went on to say that if elected, he would no longer borrow money from china to pay for pbs. china funds pbs. i guess that explains why this week's "sesame street" was brought to you by the letter this. according to nielsen numbers, more than 70 million people watched wednesday's debate either on tv, online or from one of the podiums. >> good morning. it's monday, october 8th. welcome to "morning joe." with us on set, we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle, political editor and white house correspondent for "the huffington post," sam stein. and managing editor of "fortune," andy serwer. >> andy, good to see you. how did columbia do this weekend? >> it was another "w." lehigh, i believe. >> lehigh. >> went out to pennsylvania and lost the football game. >> the columbia, what are you guys? >> lion

"usa today" gallup poll shows growing momentum for mitt romney in the key battleground states, including ohio, florida, and virginia. the poll has romney pulling ahead by four points among likely voters. 50% to 46%. this is obviously a big shift. it's only one poll. but perhaps the bigger take away from this poll and some others is how the candidates are ranking among likely woman voters in those battleground states. we've heard an awful lot about the gender gap since the primary season, but among likely female voters in swing states, mitt romney's pulling almost even with the president. 48% to 49%, among male voters in the swing states, romney has an eight-point lead over the president. mark, let's start with you. you're reporting right now that senior democratic officials are starting to talk to you about real concern about the possibility of a buckeye state slipping away from the obama campaign. of course, you talk to democrats, mark, and they'll tell you they're always overly concerned. the polls still show barack obama well ahead. but they're starting to see florida defin
